Honor Your Purpose in Life

Honor Your Purpose in Life

You have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world. And for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the creative expression of your talent, that is the spark that creates affluence. This is the Law of Dharma.

Make the Law of Dharma into effect by making a commitment to making the following steps:

1. Today I will lovingly nurture the god or goddess in embryo that lies deep within my soul. I will pay attention to the spirit within me that animates both my body and my mind. I will awaken myself to this deep stillness within my heart. I will carry the consciousness of timeless, eternal being in the midst of time-bound experience.

2. I will make a list of my unique talents. Then I will list all the things that I love to do while expressing my unique talents. When I express my unique talents and use them in the service of humanity, I lose track of time and create abundance in my life as well as in the lives of others.

3. I will ask myself daily, “How can I serve?” and “How can I help?” The answers to these questions will allow me to help and serve my fellow human beings with love.

I had experienced 'expressing my unique talents' for many years - my path felt right for me.
I'm grateful for that experience because I felt that I was making a difference by helping others each day.
However, filled with enthusiasm and due to a unique set of circumstances, I then moved to another country.
Thereafter, I continued to face chaos in the workplace and life was a challenge in trying to deal with all the ups and downs brought about by rapid changes and unprofessional people.
Fortunately, my wise mother had taught me that there is nothing a permanent as change.
Some changes are not so good and challenges continue, despite my trying to honour the purpose of my life...

To say you have a "purpose in life" is to take the human concept of a 'career' and apply it to life in general. No one has some predetermined goal they need to reach. Humans are not some higher, divine species; we don't have an inherit purpose in life beyond to reproduce and preferably survive as long as possible, and that would be true for any given animal.

"nurture the god or goddess in embryo that lies deep within my soul"

What the hell...
